Honey Water Mycelium Using Peice Of PF Cake (Colonized)
    #2279298 - 01/28/04 12:22 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I recently created a honey water solution and added a chunk of colonized pf cake to spawn mycelium in the mixture. I havent seen this variation of the honey water tek before and had some questions.

Heres my procedure to date with results and questions at the end:

Pressure Cooked 1/2 pint jar containing water, tablespoon of honey (non-organic)and a glass shard for 25 minutes. Once cooled, I added a chuck of colonized cake using oven tek, and placed the jar in a tupperware container with heating pad.

After 4 days, the chuck (3/4" dia.) of pf cake which is floating inside the jar on the surface, has a 1/8 inch of new mycelium growth around it. I then shook the jar to break up the mycelium with the glass shard.


1. Organic honey is recommended in the honey water tek. Will any type of honey work?

2. Is it necessary to use a chuck of cake or can I just use a small strand of mycelium.

3. How long should I allow the mycelium to grow in the solution. Its hard to tell how much mycelium has grown in the solution since theres a lot of floating debris (BRF, Verm).

4. Where is the best place to store the solution.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
